Last week I posted the first half of an extremely informative interview I did with Kat Loterzo (formerly known as Kat Eden) on business and mindset. If you missed it, you can get up to speed here before watching the second half. I filmed these interviews last year, and I have to say, looking back at them has given me a good kick up the bum, as I’ve realised I’ve fallen back into some of my bad procrastination/productivity habits! If you struggle with things such as time management, you’re going to get a lot out of these videos!
- Put first things first. One of the most useful pieces of advise Kat has been given, is to set yourself 2-3 big goals a year. One might be business related, two might be physical for example, and then everyday you start your day with something related to one of those goals. It’s too easy to get caught up with emails, admin and Facebook! To get ahead in business, put the important stuff first!
- One of the best productivity tips Kat ever received, was to do work in chunks of 25 minutes. So you’d set your alarm for 25mins and when it goes off, you give yourself 5mins to check Facebook, emails etc, and then as soon as those 5mins are up, you go straight back to the 25mins of solid work! I think this is a fantastic tip!
Kat’s Number One Tip For Start Up Entrepreneurs
- Get clear on your outcome
- Narrow it down to what the most important things are for you in business, and then focus purely on those top few things. If you try to do a little bit of 10 aspects of your business, you might still get ahead but you may kill someone in the process or lose your relationship! All jokes aside, doing the latter will take you far too long, but if you focus on one aspect at a time and then move on to the next once you’ve completed that aspect of your business, you’ll have a much better outcome! One step at a time!
This last tip has really spoken to me! Because I’m trying to build a couple of businesses at the same time, I’m definitely finding I’m focusing on a little bit of about 6 different aspects of my business which has made me succumb to a world of OVERWHELM! Do you or have you felt the same? What have been your tips and strategies that have helped you move forward? I’d luv to hear from you!
